(4.6 stars; 67 reviews)

Shakespeare's festive comedy combines classical Athenian characters (Duke Theseus and his conquered Amazonian bride Hippolyta) with four contentious lovers, a forest full of quarreling and mischievous fairies and adds a dose of amateur theatre for good measure. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

All round an excellent dramatic reading! It all flows very smoothly, especially when you consider that all the readers recorded their parts separately. Great production job Elizabeth! And I loved Bob Gonzalez' reading of Nick Bottom - very fun and quite lively!
